Diamantinasaurus

The latest dinosaur to be portrayed on our Australian Age of Dinosaurs silver proof coin series is a bit of a tounge-twister! Its name is pronounced DIA-MAN-TINA-SAW-RUS.

Diamantinasaurus is a titanosaur, a group of plant eating sauropod dinosaurs that existed in the late Cretaceous Period. It lived in the Cenomanian Epoch between 100 and 95 million years ago.
